Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, michiganflora.net will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

Sisyrinchium angustifolium Mill.
Common Name: STOUT BLUE-EYED-GRASS
Coefficient of Conservatism: 4
Coefficient of Wetness: 0
Wetness Index: FAC
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Moist shores, meadows, fields, thickets, and swales; oak-hickory forests, forest borders, grassy clearings. Plants with simple stems and sessile spathes belong here if the stems are very broadly winged (> ca. 3 mm).

Rare plants that do not seem to darken on drying may be distinguished from Sisyrinchium strictum by their stems wider than (2.5) 3 mm, strongly unequal spathe bracts, and no tendency for peduncles and spathes to be geniculate at base.
